I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.

Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.

Beast: A Hate Story, The beginning is the first book in The Hate Story Duet. It is a grown up fairytale of Beauty and the Beast set in a modern day mafia world. Frankie offers herself up as repayment for her father’s debt and to save his life. Anteros, also known as Beast, accepts the deal but gets more than he had bargained for.

“She swallowed again and smacked his hand away. The Beast smiled, but only a fool would think it was anything other than chilling. The smile was lazy and crooked, his teeth pearly white. Something in that smile betrayed pure wickedness, an evil born and not begotten. “My life for his,” she repeated.”

The writing was beautiful and the story was so engaging and pulled me right into this dark and evil world. The story seemed to drag along a bit in the middle with a little less to grab my attention, but wowed me with a cliffhanger that really left me hanging!!
